Faulty Towers - The Dining Experience comes to Ballyvolane House

We are delighted to announce that 'Faulty Towers - The Dining Experience' a fully interactive dining and theatre event at Ballyvolane House on Saturday, 9th and on Saturday, 16th December 2017.

This globetrotting show is truly quite legendary, selling out in places like Edinburgh Fringe, Norway and Sydney Opera House. In this, its 20th birthday year, it returns to Ballyvolane House, but be warned: it will sell out here too, so early booking is essential. 

Chaos greets audiences as soon as they walk through the front door of the main house. In this fully immersive experience, the audience become diners in the infamous ‘Faulty’ restaurant, served a 3-course meal by Basil, Sybil and Manuel. Guests can enjoy drinks in the main house on arrival then Basil will lead guests to their tables in the dining terrace as soon as everyone has arrived. Expect lashings of laughter, huge bowls full of spontaneity and as much participation as individual audience members want. And with 70% of the show improvised, no two performances are ever the same.
